Test Automation: great alternative to Selenium


Software test automation is very popular topic nowadays.

Probably you heard something about Senenium, don’t you?

This course is different than other courses about automaton. Selenium is not the best solution for each case. Maintenance test infrastructure can be time consuming with Selenium. In this course I will show you that you can write maintainable and stable automation scripts very quickly. And Sahi will help us with this.

Unlike Selenium, where you must download web drivers for each browser, Sahi solve this problem easily. Maintenance of test infrastructure will be handled by properly selected web automation tool – Sahi.

Let me shortly depict what you will learn in this course.

Prior automating web application with Selenium, Sahi or other dedicated tool, you need to understand why and what to automate.

After that, you will install and configure web automation tool Sahi which allows to write highly effective multi browser automated scripts.

Then, you will learn how to identify any UI element. Selenium uses XPaths for complicated HTML code whereas Sahi has its built-in API which makes constructing locators easier.

Also, we will learn how to perform a wide range of possible actions and assertions.

Finally, we will learn how to improve our tests and enhance their maintainability using Page Object Model and Data Driven Testing.

Selenium with TestNG or xUnit provides us with DDT but Sahi has its extremely simple implementation.

We will learn how to organize our tests into test suite and execute a lot of test scripts within one run. While Selenium with TestNG requires complicated XML files, Sahi implements suites as a simple list of tests you want to run!

At the end of my course, as a bonus, I will present you complicated things in simple way: how to download and upload files, how to read and write files. These tasks may be quite challenging in other technologies like Selenium with Java.

I am sure this course will very useful for you. And I guess you will think about migration your tests from popular technologies like Selenium, Protractor or others 🙂
